Your not Seeing things, That Mirage is a Sedan!

Mirage G4, 2017 Mirage

Mitsubishi scored a huge win with its latest generation of the Mirage.  With its smaller engine, spacious interior, and clean styling, the Mirage teaches you that being small can be a good thing. The Mirage is pound for pound a one of the best cars on the market.  It has a reputation for being a money saver with one of the best miles per gallon for a vehicle that is not a hybrid.  The Mitsubishi Mirage’s sales success led to the additional expansion of a sedan based model.  We here at Jim Shorkey are happy to announce we have the 2017 Mitsubishi G4 Sedan. The G4 Sedan is unique from the Hatchback model but keeps the traits that makes the Mirage loved.

The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is a four-door sedan version of the pre-existing Mirage hatchback.  All 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage models will get a revamp no matter hatchback or sedan.  The sedan obviously gains a trunk, the G4 sports all of the upgrades made to the Mirage sedan for 2017, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.  Switching to a four-door sedan body changes the styling, and at the other end there’s a designed a sedan-specific front fascia.  The G4 sedan is already sold in a bunch of other markets as either the Mirage G4 or the Attrage, and Mitsubishi decided this was the year to bring the sedan to North America for some time.

The Mitsubishi G4 Mirage offers the same 1.2-liter, three-cylinder engine as the Mirage hatchback. While driving you should expect it to produce the same 78 horsepower and 74 pound-feet torque, and for the same five-speed manual and CVT automatic transmission options to be on tap. What the Mirage lacks in power it makes up for in fuel economy: the last hatchback model to be EPA certified got 40 mpg combined, making it the most efficient non-hybrid car sold in the U.S. The Sedan will get 37 mpg

The interior should be pretty similar to the Mirage hatchback, which gets a new steering wheel and seat materials as part of its 2017 refresh. Like the hatchback, the Mirage G4 gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The 300-watt Rockford Fosgate audio system from the five-door may be offered on the sedan as well.

Our Favorite Places to Drive the Mitsubishi Mirage around Pittsburgh and North Huntingdon

With an EPA-estimated 40 mpg when combined with the available continuously variable transmission (CVT) and an impressively low base price, you’ll most likely want to drive your new Mirage all over Western PA. We recently scooped out the best spots!

Fat Head’s Saloon
Located in Pittsburgh’s South Side—an area notorious for limited street parking—Fat Head’s Saloon is a craft beer brewery with a massive menu. In the Mirage, you can easily maneuver into that one cramped spot that SUVs and mid-size sedans have to pass up. So while your friends are making laps around the building or paying to park in a garage, you’ll be chowing down on some appetizers.

The University of Pittsburgh’s Cathedral of Learning
Cathedral of Learning Pittsburgh
And while you’re over in the South Side, you can hop onto the Birmingham Bridge and head over to Oakland to visit the Cathedral of Learning. Whether you want to check out the Nationality Rooms or simply take in the cathedral’s grandeur, you won’t have to worry about the narrow lanes in Oakland or parallel parking on the street. With the Mirage’s subcompact frame, the odds of you sideswiping mirrors as you hunt for a spot is slim to none.

Fort Ligonier
From Pittsburgh, you’ll want to hop on the turnpike and head east to Fort Ligonier—a British fort in the French and Indian War. And since you’re already paying tolls, you’ll be happy to save gas money in your Mirage. Once you arrive, you can explore the museum galleries, exhibits, and extensive archaeological collections. You can also tour the impressive Fort, a full-scale, on-site restoration/reconstruction of the 1758 – 1766 original. The Fort Ligonier town itself is about 15 acres, while the restored Fort is about 8—making you happy you drove the Mirage so that you don’t have to walk.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater
The Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece, located within the wooded Bear Run Nature Reserve, is a monument to organic architecture at its best. This must-see construction is about a 45-mile drive from Fort Ligonier, so you’ll need the Mirage’s fuel economy, which is the best of any non-hybrid vehicle. And a bonus: after you return from your hike through the Reserve, you’ll have no trouble spotting your brightly colored Mirage in the crowded parking lot!

Safe travels!
